Based on the French film "Joyeux Noël", this 2012 Pulitzer Prize-winning opera follows a band of soldiers during the historical Christmas Eve cease-fire of 1914 among German, French and Scottish forces fighting in World War I. While meager holiday rations are shared, troops bury their dead to a chorus of Christmas songs. "Silent Night" is a sobering glimpse into a fleeting moment of peace amidst one of the bloodiest wars in modern history. Featuring multiple languages and a cinematic score, this national co-production mixes the traditional and contemporary to create a deeply affecting and exciting work of art. The performance is sung in English, German, French, Italian and Latin, with English and Spanish translations projected above the stage.
